Updated on - October 08, 2014
________________________________________

UPDATES: BEACON QRT....Maybe up sometime in future...

NEW FREQUENCY - 28.202.8 MHz( OLD - 28.243.00 )
Problem with cable in area. Comcast "On Demand Back Signal" runs
around 28.440.00, so it was bleeding in or something. (Back Signal)
Comcast has "Birdies" in the 28, 50, and 144 Mhz HAM Bands.

out of Western Massachusetts. Power outage or maintenance will cause the beacon
to be temporarily off the air and operation may be intermittent due to local conditions.
